Inanna

I was reading along just fine here, and then the word "gentlemen" hit me right between the eyes.

Do you not realize that long-time blog reader Inanna is a goddess?

She expects to see "gentlepeople" in use in the future. Or "Hey, everyone." Or "YO!"

Fair enough. Honestly, I wasn't trying to deny the existence of a female readership. I was just trying to single out the part of the demographic that, in my opinion, most needs that particular reminder. Women seem, in general, to have it more together when it comes to staying focused on retinally stabilized images. But maybe that's just a narrow-minded world view. My apologies.

So that explains why you don't see your nose, even though it's within your field of vision. Now, explain why mirrors only reverse the image laterally, not up and down.

You just have to lie down on your side in front of the mirror; then you're all set.

Zeus, I like how you dropped the news while making birdie on hole 17. They were the first words out of your mouth. What style and grace. I only hope to go out like that, but I can't even make it past the glass ceiling.

Upward and onward!

I think it is natural for things to end with a bang or a whimper. It happens in love, in work, and it will probably be one of the two when we die.

I think if I had to choose, I would go out the door slowly, savor the end, let the change happen in due time and be at peace with it when the run finally ends.

Then again, sometimes throwing grenades into a situation is more satisfying and gets you to the next step more expediently.

Either way, I hear there's some great stuff on the other side of the door to look forward to.

If your Freerk analogy doesn't make it into a wedding speech at some point, it will be a travesty.
